This workshop consists of lecture and hands-on exercises intended for new or existing users of Avizo software. The material covered in the training will introduce advanced 3D visualization and analysis solutions for materials analysis. The course will highlight the important features and unique functions of Avizo.

Who Attends?

Imaging scientists, researchers, directors of imaging centers, radiologists, microscope operators, nano and CT operators.

Topical Outline

After a quick introduction, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, see live demonstrations, and use the Avizo software. Attendees must bring their own PC with suitable 3D graphics board for course participation.

General Introduction to Avizo software

  • 3D visualization (slicing, volume redering)
  • 3D image processing and segmentation
  • Quantification and advanced measurements (including fiber and porosity analysis)

Hands-on session:

  • Pore Network Modelling
  • Image-to-simulation workflows (surface and 3D mesh generation for collaboration with FEA/CFD solvers)
  • DVC (Digital Volume Correlation)

Instructor Biography

Tomas Silva Santisteban was heavily involved in the design & development of microfluidic chip-systems during his PhD research at the University of Freiburg in Germany while also working on 3D cellular imaging and image processing before joining Thermo Fisher Scientific. Currently, he is working as an Amira and Avizo expert engineer developing solutions with users for their 3D analysis challenges. He enjoys training new users in visualizing and analyzing their data with Amira and Avizo, and thereby also helping researchers make an impact in their respective fields.
